It looks like the company is not yet ready to call it a year. Recently in an event in China, Honor announced the Honor View 20. The handset comes with a large display complete with an in-display cutout hole for the front camera and HiSilicon’s top-of-the-line chipsest.

The Honor View 20’s front camera has a 25MP sensor. It’s not found on a notch, but rather in a small 4.5mm cutout. According to the company, they used an advanced lithography process that allows for a more seamless design, making it more durable with less light bleed.

At the back, the phone boasts a 48MP rear camera with a 3D ToF sensor. The main sensor outputs 12MP images and uses a Quad-Bayer method similar to the process used by the Huawei P20 Pro

The phone also sports a unique design here as well. It has a reflective V-pattern design that appears when hit by light at the right angle.
